Welcome to TCFDT(NI)

TCFD (Tanzania Christian Farm Development) was founded in Tanzania in 1993 by Gordon and Phyllis McCormick to do God's work in Tanzania. Work began in September 1993 on what is now a 300 acre site situated on the outskirts of Ndevelwa village near Tabora. Tabora is located in the central region of Tanzania some 700 miles inland from the executive capital of Dar es Salaam. This property is mostly forest and was allocated by the Government of Tanzania for the development of a school to teach agriculture and other trades. In 2000 a Trust was also formed in Northern Ireland  known as Tanzania Christian Farm Development Trust (NI).

There are now 25 children (13 boys and 12 girls) in the Childrens home. If you are interested in sponsoring a child please contact us at

In 2016, we commenced an additional building to the children's home to meet future demand requirements, both for additional children and a suitable building as the current children get older. Teams were primarly involved in building work (block building, electrical work, painting, plumbing, joinery work and help looking after the children.
